im just a flag man this burnt railroad
a double header is what they asked
employed less workers with more at stake
i do refuse this and will not work
and after all i dont deserve this
the crew refused to and multiplyed
the factories and mills let out
we stopped the freight trains in their tracks
the train man's union moved to take home
and after all my family they need me here
and i - i am worth more than this
the troops were brought in
back to a round house the fires were lit
the trains polluted and shots were fired
the city rose up and chaos ruled
and after all i dont deserve this
what was i thinking the night before
was i ready to do this
with others joined
and i see my family starving and cold
there is a ringing in my head
and after all my fmily they need me here
and i-i am worth more than this
so go to hell
and i- i am worth more than this
